The Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality offers the MS in Event Management (MSEM), one of the first degrees of its kind in the country. Its cutting-edge curriculum, focused on the skills event managers need in this fast-growing, globally expanding industry, prepares students for event planning and management careers across private, public, and nonprofit organizations. This comprehensive program of study affords students the benefits and resources of earning an event management degree at NYU, while establishing themselves in New York City—home to venues such as Madison Square Garden and the Jacob Javits Center, and host to iconic events such as the U.S. Open and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Event management is the process of envisioning, designing, producing and delivering live events or virtual events, ranging from business conventions and trade shows to festivals and weddings. Event management is one of the fast-growing sectors of the hospitality management industry.
